THE man at the head of the trust that runs Yate’s leisure centre and six others across South Gloucestershire has received a regional award from the Institute of Directors.
Mark Crutchley has been director of Circadian Trust since it was formed more than ten years ago.
The social enterprise works with South Gloucestershire Council to provide sport and leisure facilities in the district.
It said in the last nine years it had put some £7 million into those services while still making savings for the council.
Mr Crutchley was presented with his award at an event at the Ashton Gate stadium in Bristol, which was held to recognise the success of South West businessmen and women.
He will now go forward to the national finals, to be held in the autumn.
Circadian has introduced a number of schemes to improve health and leisure provision, including the development of a combined leisure centre and library membership.
This year, with some Arts Council funding, that project was extended to offer free membership to all new students at selected South Gloucestershire schools.
Mr Crutchley, said: “It’s wonderful to receive this award and be recognised for our hard work across South Gloucestershire to improve the health and leisure provision of the local community.”
